Had dinner here on my first night in Paris after 22 hours flying from Sydney. All the tourists are relegated to the back room which is insulting but at least you know where you stand. The service from all the waiters was good humoured and...More

We booked in advance so were delighted with our table for Easter Saturday evening. I can't say I'm particularly a Ducasse fan, but Aux Lyonnaise seemed worth a try. I have to say, food was great, service dignified, classical and refined, and overall a delightful...More

Visited with another couple who live in Paris and who booked this place for a meal with us on Saturday. Old style French restaurant. Interesting food. Prices were ok ish for what it was. The wine though?! Ridiculously overpriced considering it is all home grown!...More

A great dining experience in a Parisian atmosphere. Service excellent and menu interesting and varied. Cottled eggs were great. And perfectly done. The scallops as a evening special were the best ever. Have the soufflé....yumm.

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in

Aux Lyonnais: a Parisian bistro dedicated to the cuisine of Lyon !This traditional "bouchon Lyonnais" in Paris opened in 1890.

Just like Alain Ducasse, he gives pride of place to local produce, and is partial to friendly and festive cooking that suits the traditional setting with its beautiful zinc covered wood countertop and the metro-style wall tiles that delight the guests.A star dish of the establishment: Coddle egg, crayfish fricassee with herbs: Calf’s liver with parsley and garlic, tender potatoes shavings; Lyonnaise-style quenelles, Nantua sauce…
